For a bit of fun, I snapped the STF remake board on top of the donor C070789 board just to compare.

Huge respect to exxos for the amazing reduction in scale :)

Did ponder adding a second CPU.. but alas, a lot of work and no software to use it, so idea shelved..

Maybe build in a MSTE or TT instead? Would say a Falcon but that is definitely a step too far :lol:

Let's hope so.
I'd love to have a TT-beater for my MIDI setup :D
